European support for NEXT

Eppur si muove!

We are pleased to announce that the request under the Advanced Grant programme of the European Research Council submitted by the Principal Investigator of the NEXT experiment, Prof. J. J. Gomez-Cadenas, has been recommended for funding.

The Advanced Grants are the highest level funding instrument of the ERC, being defined by the Council WEB page as:  "ERC Advanced Grants allow exceptional established research leaders of any nationality and any age to pursue ground-breaking, high-risk projects that open new directions in their respective research fields or other domains. The ERC Advanced Grant funding targets researchers who have already established themselves as independent research leaders in their own right."

The ERC decision will not only provide a substantial contribution to overcome the present economical situation of the experiment but is also a recognition, at the highest European level, of the excellence of one of the leader LSC experiments. The reports to the ERC of its international experts largely overlap with the conclusions periodically elaborated in the last years by the LSC Scientific Committee.
